So you would have approx  something less than .250  thousands at the fade depending on how long your riser is and .214 thousands at the tip-

if you can post a pic of your form profile  and riser length I think it can help everyone visualize what taper rated might be appropriate to start with.

Stack would be .250, he got it correct, he is building a 60" Recurve so at the nock it would be .220

You will get 36" long lams, don't cut the butt end off the .001 taper FYI
I would rather fail at something above my means, than to succeed at something  beneath my means

Kenny, could you explain how you got the taper thickness? Obviously I am missing something.

I will try to post the form as soon as I can.

I’m still not sure what your limb looks like. But starting out with a recurve at 36# you could have a good challenge getting your limbs tracking straight using an .001 taper rate.  I have to drop to a par or even a reverse taper at that draw weight on my static tip design to keep it from going sideways easily.

What it the riser length fade to fade tip, and over all bow length?

A .001 taper has .036 total in the 36" lam.  So .090 - .036 = .054

But if you trim the lam to length, obviously you won't get the full .036" of taper.

Hope I made that understandable ... :thumbsup:

Stay sharp, Kenny.

I think I am with y’all now. I will try to post the form this weekend. We won’t have time to work on it until then. I was trying to do all of the planning during the week so we could make the most of our weekends.I appreciate all of your help. This has been very insightful.
